Boomers Vs. Gen Yers--What I'm Learning From Students At Parsons.

I’m learning a lot from my students and my TAs at Parsons. We’ve just started the University Lecture series and already it is clear that the entire learning/teaching experience in most schools, from k-12 through university, needs to be radically changed. Check out this YouTube presentation created by the digital ethnography group at Kansas State University. It highlights student life as it is—and lecture hall teaching as it is.

One of the questions that came up in a session is whether or not Baby Boomer university administrators trying to students for a world that no longer exists. What do you think about that proposition?

Indeed, corporations and ngos and all institutions should be asking that question. Are the baby boomer managers and leaders using old processes and paradigms that no longer work with Gen Yers?

What do you think?
